There's just something about the way this book was written that made me fall in love with it. The letters held such power and made me feel as if they had been written to me. It just seemed so real and connected me to the story in a way other books just don't do. Everyone knows what it's like to have someone close to them die, have a crush, to have to deal with bullies,abuse and someone's prejudices. To read about it from Charlie's perspective was just incredible.Five Stars definitely.
